Holiday Food Distribution
PASSOVER – ‘KIMCHA D’PISCHA‘
A few weeks before Passover, dozens of trucks loaded with kosher for Passover food arrive daily at the Logistics Center in Lod. With the help of volunteers and soldiers, thousands of food packages are prepared for the holiday. Each package has over 30 items including matzot, wine, fish, poultry, sugar, tea, coffee, canned foods, drinks, fruits, vegetables and more.
The packages are distributed to the needy all throughout the country in cooperation with the welfare authorities.
It is a great and important mitzvah to contribute food to the needy for the holidays – “kol dichfin yetey v’yeychol’ – “All who are hungry, come and eat” and thus you shall be blessed from God.
THE HIGH HOLIDAYS
Every year for the High Holidays we, together with the security forces who come to help us, prepare to receive thousands of food products for distribution to the needy. We distribute thousands of special food packages with holiday products such as honey, apples, poultry, fish, canned goods, wine, fruits, vegetables and more.
